Travel Bug

I recently returned from a trip to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Lush, green, tropical landscaping, white sandy beaches, warm aqua-blue water, iguanas, cenotes, ruins, and hard-working, friendly people. I loved it and would go back in a second.

I say that, but this world is filled with so many fascinating places. Almost too many. And the problem is that I want to see them all. The gorgeous landscapes of New Zealand, the Great Wall in China, the history and beauty of Europe, the jungles and animals of Africa, the rainforests of Brazil, Israel, Japan, Russia, Prince Edward Island, you name it. Pictures only do so much for me. I want to see, touch, feel, experience. I want to go. And I want to show my kids when they get a little older.

If only unlimited money, time, and freedom came with this desire. :)

What about you? If you could go anywhere you wanted, what place/places are at the top of your wish list?


  1. My husband took me to Hawaii and it was gorgeous, but I missed my kids. I'm not big on traveling and leaving my kids. Maybe when they're all gone from home, oh, wait, I'll probably be 80 years old by then :).

    I would like to see Australia and go on a Church history tour and go to Jerusalem.

  2. I'm a little late on answering this, but my secret desire is to travel through Europe, and not by bus with a tour full of other people. I'd like to sleep in old drafty castles and small vine covered cottages, taking pictures and writing about the people I meet. England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Greece ... with no pre-set time deadline to return ... yeah, that's my secret desire.
